Dr Disrespect seems to already have his gripes with Valorant despite it only being in beta. In particular, the streamer took aim at the title’s movement mechanics, roasting them with a hilarious IRL parody.
The two-time blockbuster video game champion is never one to shy away from sharing his opinion on any new release. Settling into the record-setting first day of Valorant’s beta, the streaming sensation already has one major gripe.
Rather than simply expressing his concerns, Doc instead decided to jump around in a hilarious IRL parody to get his point across.
Roughly 14 hours into the beta of Riot’s highly-anticipated FPS title, Dr Disrespect appeared to reach his breaking point while failing to hit a shot with the Operator sniper.
“You’ve gotta sit like a f***ing statue to shoot this f***ing weapon,” he yelled after being gunned down by an opposing Phoenix.
Relocating to his custom locker room, Doc jumped around like a maniac to vent his frustrations. He continued by yelling everyone in the game is “bunny hopping,” and that “you can’t even fire the sniper.”
With his trusty pocket knife equipped, he imitated Valorant’s characters as though no one walked. Instead, he said, everyone in the game is jumping at all times.
His team still managed to win the round decisively too, despite his comedic outburst.
“Calm down Doc,” he joked at the beginning of the next round. “We’re having a good time. We’re up 10-2. I’m blowing everyone else out of the water with my K/D ratio.”
Taking a moment to reflect on the fiery parody, he played into the character, joking that Dr Disrespect has “some psychological problems” when it comes to competitive games like Valorant.
That wasn’t the only incident that got him out of his chair during the day one Valorant beta stream however. Doc also imitated the game’s movement in a different way after being one tapped by an opposing Raze.
“I mean, strafing, moving, the animation of the character…I…” he cut off before transitioning back to the locker room once again.
This time, instead of bunny hopping, Dr Disrespect roasted the game’s strafing animation. Holding his hands out like a weapon while his legs looked like those of a classic marionette, he slid across the ‘locker room’ floor.
After streaming live for over 14 hours on the very first day of Valorant’s beta, it’s clear that Doc didn’t want to miss out on the record-shattering hype.
While it’s still early days yet, and he certainly has his gripes about the game’s movement on day one, it looks like Dr Disrespect will be sinking his teeth into the new release for quite some time — despite the game’s “stupid” mechanics.
